I'm a God-fearing woman. My twitter profile boldly states that I Love who's seated on the Right Hand of The Father! So I was dismayed that I had to "think up" five specifics for gratefulness.
After praying and pondering my thoughts, I realized that I need not be ashamed about having to ponder my gratefulness. I recognized some seemingly small reasons turned me on to some big ones.
It is with this revelation that I reveal one of my reasons for gratefulness, this weekend. My Uncle Michael and Aunt Sabrina. My father's youngest brother, and one who aided in raising me and my sister during his tenure living with us, came to visit me this weekend.
It was glorious.
Now three weeks--a pinky toe--out of Cancer, I was able to partake in many activities that I couldn't participate in for months. This was my family's first visit to California. It wasn't enough time to see everything--it never is--but we had the best time. On Wednesday we visited Malibu...

My point? My Uncle and Auntie called and thanked me profusely for my husband's and my hospitality. What they don't know is that being here for those few days--I'm already bribing them for their return--rejuvenated and revived me in ways they could not imagine.
I am so grateful to God. I am so thankful. I am humbled in the presence of the Lord! #MakingMemories! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! #Family!
